Institutions & Energy Policy
Papua New Guinea (PNG for short) occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea (the western part belongs to Indonesia).
The energy sector is under the control of the Department of Petroleum and Energy (DPE), through two main divisions: Petroleum Division (oil and gas) and Energy Division (electricity and renewables).
PPL, PNG Power Limited, is the integrated state-owned power company.
After several years of very irregular production since 2009 (between 0 and 1.3 Mt), crude oil production stopped in 2015. Before 2009, PNG's oil production declined steadily from around 3.6 Mt in 2000 to 2 Mt in 2009.
The country has one refinery with a capacity of 32.5 kbl/d.
Total energy consumption per capita reached 0.52 toe in 2020. Electricity consumption per capita is around 620 kWh.
Total energy consumption remained stable in 2020 at 4.7 Mtoe. Between 2018-2019, it increased by 12%, driven by high growth in thermal power generation. Energy consumption had previously increased by around 3%/year over 2010-2018.
Issues & Prospects
In the APEC 7th edition of Energy Demand and Supply Outlook report, primary energy demand is projected to increase by 2%/year to 5 Mtoe in 2050 (BAU scenario).
